US 2 - Two Medicine River Bridge

Overview

Two Medicine River Bridge project mapThe US 2 - Two Medicine River Bridge project will replace the existing bridge over Two Medicine River on US Highway 2 (US 2) on a new alignment with approximately one mile of new roadway. The existing bridge, built in 1941, is currently both structurally deficient, and functionally obsolete. It is 761-feet long and crosses 150-feet above the Two Medicine River with 12-foot lanes and no shoulders. There are also engineering concerns with areas of instability relating to the slopes at the existing bridge abutments.

The project is located less than one mile east of East Glacier within Glacier County on Blackfeet Indian Reservation, and approximately 12 miles west of Browning, Montana.
